Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a medical disorder characterized by an inability to get an erection which can hamper sexual intercourse. Many physiological factors such as cholesterol and diabetes and psychological factors such as anxiety and stress can cause erectile dysfunction. 

Doctors recommend medications, psychotherapy and some exercises to help with ED. If medications prove to be ineffective, then your doctor may recommend surgical procedures such as vascular surgery.
